2023 AAPI Symposium at SMU

This symposium brings together an interdisciplinary group of scholars to discuss issues, concerns, and new research findings pertinent to Asians, Asian Americans, and Pacific Islanders in higher education. Through research presentations, dynamic discussions, and interactive activities, we will explore AAPI voices through the lenses of race, identity, history, gender, politics, law, and communication. We invite you to be part of this much-needed dialogue toward the inclusion, empowerment, and solidarity among AAPI and allies.  

This symposium is organized by the Southern Methodist University (SMU) Asian Studies and Asian American Experiences Research Cluster and sponsored by the SMU Dedman College Interdisciplinary Institute in partnership with the SMU Office of Diversity and Inclusion, Center for Presidential History, William P. Clements Department of History, Asian Studies Program, Women and LGBT Center, and Women and Gender Studies Program.

This event is part of the AAPI Heritage Month celebration at SMU and is open to all scholars, practitioners, and policy makers interested in Asian and Asian American Studies.  

Speakers express their own views and not necessarily the views of the DCII or SMU.
